    UPS defines this as someone who determines the actual route of a package.

    i know it includes being a preloader im not sure what else

    Haven't you heard, there are no skilled positions in the hourly ranks.
    This is especially true in the preload.
    Everything has been automated, simplified, and computerized to the extent that there is no thought needed.
    This is why you only make minimum wage.

    I disagree. Decap (DA) and decaping at a high level (knowing the street breaks, zips, add flips, etc ins and outs) is definitly a job that requires skills.

    I was being facetious.
    Haven't you ever read any of my stuff?
    I tend to be a little sinicle.
    I don't know why?
    I agree.
    Every position has a skill set and a degree of artistry.
    Some more obvious than others.

    Spell check gave me several options. None of which looked right. I picked the one in the middle. Spell check saves me most of the time but occasionally exposes me for the truck driver I am.

    If the thread author is talking about part-time $1 more per hour, the skilled positions are sorter/aisle, preloader. I don't think beleive SPA, DA, pickoff, etc get the extra dollar, but not 100% sure.
